– Big brunch coming up
About seven or eight citizens attended the quiet council meeting that took place in North Hatley on March 7th. There have been no new developments regarding the possible erection of a Bell cellphone tower in town. “They approached us about putting up a tower but we won’t be chasing them down to do it. Those cell towers can be controversial,” said North Hatley mayor Michael Page. A motion was passed at the meeting for a new by-law to regulate the town’s potable water supply. The new by-law would restrict the use of the water in certain situations, such as watering grass during a drought.
A new secretary-treasurer has been hired following the stepping down of Danielle Gauvin who worked for the town for twenty years. Bruno Belisle, who previously worked for the City of Coaticook, will replace Ms. Gauvin. Longtime North Hatley resident Morgan W. Quinn was recognized for his work on the town’s CCUP and Strategic Planning committees after he retired from these positions.
Nothing new was discussed regarding the possible development project. “We have a few more months of work before we’ll have something to present to the citizens,” said Mr. Page.
The North Hatley Recreation Society’s annual brunch fundraiser is fast approaching. The NHRS brunch is a home-cooked affair of pancakes, beans, sausages, eggs, muffins and lots more, all served up between 8:00 am and noon at the North Hatley community centre on Saturday, March 19th. Special prices for families.
